Safety Tips for Driving in Winter Conditions

January 3, 2017 -- Winter driving in North Dakota can be hazardous and scary. In fact, according to the Federal Highway Administration, more than 116,000 Americans are injured and over 1,300 are killed on snowy, slushy, or icy roads every winter. But planning ahead can ensure a safe and happy trip is had by all.

The North Dakota Safety Council recommends taking the following precautions to help you arrive safely at your destination:

  1. Check the weather before you go. Wait out any storms if possible. If you must travel, allow plenty of time, and make sure to share your travel plans with others before you leave.
  2. Prepare your car for winter. Check the condition of your vehicle's ignition, brakes, battery, antifreeze, and wiring.
  3. Know what to do to avoid a crash. Do not use cruise control in wintry conditions, accelerate and decelerate slowly, look and steer in the direction you want to go, and increase your following distance.
  4. Do not leave home without these: a full tank of gas, spare tire, shovel, jumper cables, tow rope, first aid kit, ice scraper, flashlight, reflective triangles or flares, nonperishable food, candle and matches, and extra blankets, mittens, socks and hats.
  5. If you do get stranded: stay with your vehicle, make sure the exhaust pipe isn't blocked, and signal distress with a brightly colored cloth.

Preparing for a winter road trip can make your trip safer, reduce your risk of an incident, and help you deal with any potential weather emergencies. To further prepare yourself for getting behind the wheel, all while getting an insurance discount, register for a Bismarck's Adverse Weather Driving Course on February 13!

Building a Better Way
to Keep People Safe from Injury and Death

December 9, 2016 - The North Dakota Safety Council is building a hands-on safety training campus in Bismarck, ND.

Phase I of the new campus includes a nearly 5,000 square foot hands-on training lab featuring a rescue tower and equipment to be utilized during high-level fall protection, confined space rescue, rope rescue and safe scaffold assembly courses. The facility will also incorporate distance learning, a 30-person computer lab, equipment simulators and mobile training units. During Phase II a dirt floor arena and community room will be added to train on heavy equipment and host community safety events.

This new campus will help us reach more people with a new and expanded lineup of safety courses taught in a more memorable way.

Check out the progress here.

We need your support to complete this project. Please contact Kristin Wilson, 701-751-6115, to discuss naming recognition packages for the building or donate here.
